I only watched Spring Awakening because I wanted to see another film with Sherilyn Fenn. Ordinarily, I wouldn't have come close to a movie like this. It was a Waltons-like drama about the relationship between a riverboat captain and the daughter of a well-to-do family in late 1800s (?) Nebraska.
It was a Hallmark movie, so it was family fare that the kids could watch without seeing anything bad. The performances were fine, especially those by Fenn and Jamey Sheridan. Things were sewn up nicely at the end.
I'm giving this film a score of 7, but in reality it deserves a 5. Sherilyn gives it a couple extra stars. If you're into The Waltons or a Sherilyn Fenn fan, you should see this movie. Otherwise, missing it won't change your life one bit. One thing I would like to know is why Fenn's chest is so big in this movie. I'm thinking it must have been some sort of costume problem, because she looked as big as Dolly Parton, and she hasn't been that big before or since this movie (at least in anything I've ever seen). Strange......
